Hip-hop megastar Kanye West has always been unpredictable and apparently that isn’t about to change any time soon. His next album, “808s & Heartbreak,” will no longer drop in December, but instead on November 25. The surprise news came at T.I.’s MySpace show in Los Angeles. According to Billboard.com, the original release date would have put the Grammy winner a week behind 50 Cent’s “Before I Self Destruct” album, causing a repeat of the 2007 marketing beef between the two lyricists. He told MTV.com, “I had all these ideas and I just needed to get it out as an artistic vision. I don’t have a rapper’s name, [but] I have really good taste and anyone who likes it probably has really good taste too”
